at 555 franklin so the second action item we've been working on has been a long time following the district prelims of the practices and that is something we've heard from the families that they're very interested in and we've been trying to think about ways to grow the involvement of the families in the roll out in the practices of the school district so some of us met we met with the coordinator helen park and the action team o'neil and talked about ways to really coordinate to foster implementation and roll out gaemg families in the process more and out of that conversation one idea that was brought up maybe we can have a learning community that might involve both parents and the city hall staff so there would
8:19 am
be sort of a monthly meeting in learning what the district is doing and what they expect from their school site. >> what the students will have a chance to meet and learn and discuss that's something we're going to bring back to the next 0 meeting and also bring it to the established group the ed collectors that's a collaboration of the community-based organization going forward and the final area i want to update the board about the support of our english language families this is something we've been interested in for a long time and several members of the pack met what christine wong the destruct and the online coordinator from the office of public roach outreach and communications to talk about the section thought you sfusd
8:20 am
website that are only available in english and ask questions about what the policy is to determine what sections of the website are translated in other languages and what documents so they can said how the positives are and have for translations so one example that was brought up the documents building additional district we know this is an area that a lot of families are is concerned about was there are resources whether their you know disporptd available in schools we know there's a plan that exists not all families are access to know what is in the context of that document because it is only available in english fortunately that are steps that come out of the meeting there are several i'm going to read to throw several packages that are plans to translate one is our child's
8:21 am
education things you should knows right now the translation is transmitted this into spanish and chinese there is a section of the sfusd website called that community services that's been temporarily removed but you updated and will be changed in a way even if the leaks are not in negotiating the families will 0 know how to get more information and finally the family e-mail newsletter the ability for families to find out the newsletter in chinese and spanish as well so the pack wants to applaud those efforts by the district and willingness to have the two-way dialog to really thought partner with us in ways we can make sure that all families are assess

think that we should has this been discussed to having the materials trained into other translations like the arabic speaking after chinese and spanish those are the two largest populations of the children have they ever mentioned we perhaps should be standing it not only to spanish and chinese but to arabic. >> you know i think this is a very important thing to think about we certainly has we've done our outreach at various schools we've noticed we get interpreters certainly in other languages and chinese and spanish but see it is definitely we thought about i guess something that we know there's limited resources but something we will bring to the table and
8:24 am
appreciate that comment. >> because those documents look like the documents that for example our child education things you should know it didn't feel like a document that we will revert but i wonder maybe deputy instructor gerrero the probability of having those trained into arabic and vietnamese that's part of our long-standing translation and. instructor: staff is looking at that we'll be happy to bring back information to the board with the states. >> i understand we can't have everything translated but they
